Bacterial contamination is common in the uterus during early postpartum period. 80 to 100% of cows are found to have bacterial contamination of the uterus in the first 2 weeks postpartum (Foldi et al., 2006). Many of these bacteria are eliminated during the first 5 weeks after parturition, but the remaining bacteria cause uterine disease in some cows. Common bacteria isolated from cows with uterine infections are Escherichia coli, Prevotella spp. (Sheldon et al., 2006). Other studies also found… Expand

The character and odor of the vaginal mucus can be scored and this endometritis score is correlated with the growth density of pathogenic bacteria in the uterus, and is prognostic for the likely success of treatment. Expand

Antibiotic Sensitivity Spectrum of Bacterial Isolates from Cervico Vaginal Mucus of Postpartum Rural Buffaloes
A total of 55 CVM samples, collected from cycling postpartum buffaloes having apparently unhealthy vaginal discharge, were screened for bacterial isolates, found positive for bacterial growth, and the single and mixed types of bacterial isolate were found in 27 and 3 CVM sample, respectively.

Uterine diseases in cattle after parturition
The infertility associated with uterine disease is caused by damage to the endometrium and disruption of ovarian cyclic activity, and understanding the molecular basis of uterus disease will lead to novel approaches to treating infertility. Expand
Prevalence of aerobic and anaerobic uterine bacteria during peripartum period in normal and dystocia-affected buffaloes.
At the time of calving the prevalence of obligate anaerobes and A. pyogenes occurring in combination was highest in dystocia-affected buffaloes, and further increased in the postpartum period suggesting that these infections act synergistically. Expand
Postpartum uterine disease and dairy herd reproductive performance: a review.
More field studies are needed to validate criteria for treatment of metritis, but cows with at least two of RP, fever, dullness, and fetid uterine discharge appear to merit treatment with systemic antibiotics. Expand
